Abstract

To investigate the effect of self-administration of medication programme on medication adherence in cardiovascular inpatients and nurse's satisfaction. Randomized clinical trial with parallel-group design guided by the CONSORT checklist. In this study, sixty cardiovascular inpatients were selected through convenience sampling and then randomly assigned to control and intervention groups, in 2018, Iran. The intervention group took responsibility for consuming their prescribed medication according to the self-administration of medication programme and the control group took medications routinely. Medication adherence was measured one and two weeks after the discharge via telephonic follow-up by Morisky Medication Adherence Scale MMAS-8-item and nurses' satisfaction by researcher-made questioner. There was a higher medication adherence level in the intervention group rather than the usual care group at the follow-up. Most nurses in the study environment were very satisfied. The self-administration of medication programme can effectively increase patients' medication adherence and nurses' satisfaction. © 2021 The Authors. Nursing Open published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
